Resource Management RM2 2.0 was developed by NIST and consists of approximately 10 hours of English speech along with transcriptions. All RM material consists of read sentences modeled after a naval resource management task. There are two main parts, often referred to as RM1 and RM2. RM2 has an additional and larger SD data set, including test material. Resource Management Complete Set 2.0 (LDC93S3A) contains both RM1 and RM2.


The material was recorded at 16KHz, with 16-bit resolution, using a Sennheiser HMD-414 headset microphone.

This set forms a speaker-dependent extension to the Resource Management (RM1) corpus. The corpus consists of a total of 10,508 sentence utterances (two male and two female speakers each speaking 2,652 sentence texts). These include the 600 "standard" Resource Management speaker-dependent training sentences, two dialect calibration sentences, ten rapid adaptation sentences, 1,800 newly-generated extended training sentences, 120 newly-generated development-test sentences and 120 newly-generated evaluation-test sentences. The evaluation-test material on this disc was used as the test set for the June 1990 DARPA SLS Resource Management Benchmark Tests (see the Proceedings).

The RM2 corpus was recorded at Texas Instruments. The NIST speech recognition scoring software originally distributed on the RM1 "Test" Disc was adapted for RM2 sentences and is included in this publication.
